Report: Ansu Fati offered three escape routes from Barcelona

Brighton and Hove Albion Ansu Fati during the match Roma - Brighton and Hove Albion at the Olympic Stadium. Rome (Italy), March 07th, 2024.

Barcelona winger a will reportedly have options at his disposal if he wishes to depart Camp Nou in the summer.

Having scored 29 goals from 112 games for the Catalan giants, largely as a teenager, Fati's stock with the club still remains relatively high.

However, having become no more than a squad option under Xavi's tenure, the Spain international quickly became a sellable asset at a time when Barcelona are desperate to improve their financial situation.

That said, club officials did not want to part ways with the 21-year-old for a cut-price fee last summer, subsequently resulting in a straight loan deal being agreed with Brighton & Hove Albion.

As well as Barcelona getting Fati's wages off their outgoings, it also represented an opportunity for the attacker to recapture the form that initially made him one of the best prospects in world football.

Mixed Brighton spell

Instead, Fati's time at the Amex Stadium has been mixed at best, with just nine starts and 15 substitute outings being made in all competitions.

Combined with just four goals and one assist being contributed by the winger, it appears highly unlikely that Brighton will look to sign him on a permanent basis.

As such, Barcelona are left with a complex situation, needing to decide whether to consider selling for a lower fee than anticipated or give the green light to another loan.

There remains the possibility that Fati could be reintegrated back into the senior ranks, although it would likely take the sale of another high-price player for that to become realistic.

Three clubs hold interest in Fati

According to SPORT, Valencia, Sevilla and Wolverhampton Wanderers are all interested in signing Fati in the summer.

In the case of Wolves, they are no strangers to tracking Fati, having failed to sign him before his move to Brighton came to fruition.

Nevertheless, the report states that Fati and his representatives would be more in favour of returning to La Liga, handing the advantage to Valencia and Sevilla.

Valencia currently sit in seventh position in the standings and are attempting to earn a return to European football for 2023-24.

Meanwhile, Sevilla have recently moved six points clear of the relegation zone and appear on course to avoid a scrap to retain their top-flight survival under Quique Sanchez Flores.
